3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know too much about the Greek like on campus, but with my personal experiences I have not had the best impressions of fraternities or sororities.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: IU's school spirit is through the roof. Hoo-hoo-hoosiers is one of the most well known chants in the college world, I believe. The football and basketball games are definitely the most popular, with the most students attending and tailgating for those.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As much as I would love to go to a school outside of my own state, I still love Indiana University. It is very tolerant of different people and communities. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and so is downtown Bloomington. There are always things going on and new people to meet. Walking a lot all the time to classes helps people stay in shape, as well as having plenty of opportunities to keep up with it with gyms. The food is great, and most people are friendly. The music scene in Bloomington is probably my favorite part about the city. I would definitely go to IU all over again.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wouldn't really know anything about it, I'm not involved with it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everything looks really new and it is super clean and comfortable to be around and in.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful and it seems like very one so far is extremely wonderful.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At Indiana University each student is assigned to an academic advisor in their school and for their major. With that advisor one can talk about topics such as internships, job prospects, and future careers, but more importantly the steps it takes to reach that point (like which classes to take). There are also job fairs that come to the campus, where you can meet recruiters and make connections. And on top of that Indiana University has a career and development center, where you can talk to an advisor all about your future and what course is right for you.

Overall Experience: My favorite course at Indiana University so far, is physical geology with professor Douglas. In this 100 level class, you learn the basics and essentials of physical geology. This class covers a wide variety of basic topics, such as rocks, plate movement, natural disasters, weather, and others. Because there are so many topics to cover in physical geology, there is not much depth within the topic, just the basics. The professor does a very good job at keeping the students interested and educated in physical geology. The class size is relatively small, usually fifteen students. The small class size allows each student to get the attention needed for their success in the class. Overall, I highly recommend taking physical geology at Indiana University.

Health & Safety: When it comes to safety and security on campus the university claims a 'culture of care', meaning the university has started using 'culture of care' to make the students feel safer. I would like to always feel safe on my campus, but the truth is, due to recent events, involving an Indiana University student, John Enochs, who was accused of rapping two female students, I do not feel safe. Yes, I am sure, and thankful, that our campus has accessible support systems, but there needs to be less of us having to use these support systems. There needs to be more security, or a change to actively prevent sexual assaults on our campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its obvious perks, like walking to class only takes five to ten minutes. Living on campus also makes it easier to make friends because there is more opportunity for social interactions. The social atmosphere on campus is a lively one, meaning that there is always something to do. But the lively atmosphere isn't for everyone, as some find it too energetic, thus making it difficult to find peace and quiet. Another downside to living on campus versus off campus is that it is usually more expensive to live on campus, because of its close location to the university. But in the end it is all up to the individual to choose best suiting living area, whether that be on campus or off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Indiana University is relatively small, having only 20 percent of students at IU 'go Greek'. Whether you are in Greek life or not, it is easy to make friends due to the friendly atmosphere. However, if you are thinking about rushing, most of your friends will be in your Greek house, but that is not to say all of your friends are going Greek. Some who do not like the Greek life identify themselves as GDIs (God Damn Independents). For the most part, GDIs complain about the arrogance of the some that 'go Greek'. While other GDIs go to the extreme to compare Greek life to a cult. Whether you decide to rush or not, there are always new, and interesting people to meet at Indiana University.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a Hoosier, I feel blessed to be apart of such an amazing school. There are many sporting events, from football to basketball, to go to. My favorite sporting event took place at Assembly Hall. I was watching the Indiana Hoosiers Men's Basketball team, and during half time they had the cops playing a game of basketball against the fire department. The whole student section, almost all the way full, had a blast cheering for the fire department. Then, after half time, the basketball team took home a win for the Hoosiers.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a lot to experience at Indiana University, and the city of Bloomington in general. One of my first and favorite memories at Indiana University was during the fall of my first semester as a hoosier. I remember walking up Kirkwood avenue, looking at the sample gates, and admiring the campuses natural beauty. I then went to fourth street, where many ethnic restaurants are located, and tried the turkish cuisine from Anatolia. To finish the evening, my roommate and I, headed to the art building to check out the light wall. At the light wall, we sat down and put our legs high and against the light wall, which made our legs illuminate from the many colors. The campus culture, here in Bloomington, has a lighthearted and upbeat feel. From the beauty of the campus, the diversity present, and caring culture, to creating amazing memories, attending Indiana University has been an amazing opportunity.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
